I want to buy a library do Pop3, MAPI and SMTP programming. If it's open source, thats fine too. I would like for it to support MIME attachments and all the other things normally required for the communications module for an email client. Basically, what I want is something that supports all of the protocols that might be used within an email client program. I know this might be asking a lot, but email has been around for a long time, it seems that there ought to be something good out there by now.

I would prefer something that already has a C# interface, and if it were managed code, all the better. However, if there is a really top notch C++ library (with source even better) that has a C# wrapper that might also work. If there is just a SUPER C++ library without a C# wrapper, I wouldn't mind knowing about it, but wrapping it in C# and dealing with the unmanaged code part of things is a pain, so it would have to be enough better to justify the time and expense of wrapping things up.

I found ANSMTP SMTP COMPONENT BUILD 5.5 and ANPOP POP3 COMPONENT BUILD 5.0 at

I would appreciate anyone with experience with this library commenting on how good/bad it is.

Any other libraries out there?
